Reviewed May 31, 2010

Stayed here in May 2010. We needed a room for 3, so we stayed at the Jakober Hof. The front desk staff were friendly, but the room left much to be desired. The lighted headboard was dilapidated and looked as if it would fall apart. The beds were on cheap metal frames and rickety. We fought over who got the only decent duvet. I think our room was last updated in the 1970s. The TV did not work and the wardrobe was rickety. The shared toilet on our floor was frequently in need of toilet paper, and the shared shower room was nothing special. Our room was certainly a smoking room once upon a time, as the smell hung in the air. I wish we would've spent a bit more and stayed elsewhere. We are used to no frills so as to save money, but we couldn't wait to leave this hotel.

I booked a single room, as it was a high season, it was about 55 euros. It is quite OK for the location and price. Just across Fuggerei. Personally, I don't think it is central, very far from the train station, you can walk from Europe bus depot, though. I would say that it is on the edge of central area.
There seems 2 buildings of this hotel, one is main building in where you check in/out, another one is annex (maybe). My room was in new one. It looks a bit dormitory, everything is very simple not fancy at all. However, you can tell that it was just renovated. Bathroom is shining ( no bathtub) If you just need a room for sleeping, I will recommend this place.
I needed to make several domestic phone calls. There is a telephone in the room, but it doesn't work. ( even extention !!!)Staff explained something but they can't speak English. What I guessed was, you have to buy telephone card-like elsewhere ( the hotel doesn't even prepare it for guests) first, then blah blah blah,,,,,,,, honestly that was very annoying, after all I had to run around in the city in the evening, looking for public phones.
After I called my friends from public phone, they called me back ( to hotel) many times leaving messages for me, but the telephone in room doesn't work, meaning I have to keep stopping by the reception to check or they have to put memo under the door of my room. When I stopped by the reception one time, the staff didn't give me anything and after all I didn't get any notes from hotel, but in fact, my friends left many messages. I didn't get any memos even when I checked out. What a horrible service ! When I finally met friends later, they told me what happened. ( they were so angry, you can imagine)
If you don't have to use telephone in the hotel, I recommend you this hotel. Good deal for tight budget and very neat.

I've had the pleasure of staying at the Hotel Jakoberhof twice and will stay there if I'm ever back in Augsburg. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and up-to-date. It's in a great locations and within walking distance of all the sites of Augsburg. I've stayed in a lot of small gasthofs and pensions in Germany and I rank this one as one of the best. The staff is perhaps the best part for me. I will never forget all the pleasant conversations I had there with them.
